It’s almost Halloween, but I have to admit my heart skips a beat for the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos. All those colors, the sweet little sugar skulls, and taking time to remember the ones we love who have passed. Although I never got to celebrate in Mexico, I thought I’d bring some Día de los Muertos to the Halloween celebrations this year!
My favorite costume: Frida.
These colorful and clever office supply pumpkins from a subtle revelry remind me of papel picado dancing in the warm Mexican wind.
For dinner, a warm and healthy Pumpkin Pozole is perfect.
Finally, top if off with a spicy tamarindo tequila cocktail from HonestlyYUM.
If you are in the Chicago area this is a great time to visit the National Museum of Mexican Art where they are celebrating 100 years of Posada y su Catrina. Read more about Mexico’s delicious culture and get some recipes at Saveur.
How will you be celebrating Halloween this year?
